Janet Jackson has aired her frustrations with Island Def Jam, whom she claims is no longer supporting her label debut, "Discipline." The album has sold 392,000 copies in the United States since its February release, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
Jackson told SOHH.com that Island has discontinued promoting
"Discipline" and she will not release any more singles from the album. Her
second single, "Rock With U," failed to chart and her third single, "LUV,"
peaked at No. 34 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.
The first single released from the new album, "Feedback," reached No. 39.
In a statement released exclusively to Billboard, an Island Def Jam spokesperson says, "Unfortunately we haven't experienced the results we would have liked with this new album. But we respect and support Janet."
